Very happy with the image quality. In fact, I probably won't need anything better than this for a while. The only drawback is the size and weight, which is more inconvenient to take with me to work everyday in my backpack. But, once in a while, I do take it out and shoot. This time it was with the Canon 100mm f2.8L IS macro lens. This lens is probably one of the sharpest macro lenses on the market, by any maker. The image stabilization is amazingly effective, even in macro mode. I used it as a general purpose lens and didn't shoot much in macro mode. The focal length is quite versatile, from macro to portraiture and even landscape. If I don't need the longer working distance for macro shot, I would take this lens any time over the heavier EF 180mm f3.5L macro lens, which hadn't seen the light all year so far. The 100mm f2.8L is definitely one of the lenses that you should own, if you shoot Canon.
I am sure many people will wonder what the difference is between this lens, and the Tamron SP 90mm f2.8. I have both lenses and I have been trying to do some comparison shots but never seem to make it happen. Perhaps in the coming week, if time permits.
